Family I love hearing from you! Thank you for the emails. Dad I always think of you chip sealing n this hot weather, thank you for your hard work. Keep those guys at work safe, stuff happens fast.love ya dad. Mom running isn't everything lol but Im sorry you couldn't run. Colby went to a high adventure? Where did he go? How was it? Zolly emailed and said he got to see you. I wish I could have been there but I was glad you got to see him. He is a great young man! Thats cool that the Dimicks came down, I sure miss those memories but soon enough! They all look so dang big I tell you what, it is going to be weird for me to see them! Sarynn and Will look so dang big boy its weird for me because I think of them a year ago I just feel like life is on pause and have to remind myself that you are still pushing along back home! I am so happy though. You know I talk about home and get home sick sometimes but there is no place I would rather be then serving my God and helping my fellow brothers and sisters in Ghana. I love Ghana and have such a strong testimony that Heavenly Father sends you to where you need to go, overall my personality fits this culture perfectly, we are always laughing and I love meeting new people.Well Training is half way over, they say times go by fast when you train, boy they weren't lying. This week was okay, not our best week but we still gained great relationships with our investigators and had some very good lessons. I want to share an experience that we had with the S family that I think I forgot to share with you last week. We sat down with the family, the mother, the young boy who is 10 and the boy who is 5 and the girl is 14. Well we had so many powerful spiritual lessons with them and they want to be baptized. Well we taught them the book of mormon and how it was evidence that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God and if the Book is true then the only church on the face of the earth that uses it is the lords church. Well it was so powerful, well we finished the lesson and asked them to read, pray, and ponder about the Book of Mormon. They said that they would, well we invited to pray right then and ask God the Eternal Father in the name of Jesus Christ if it was true and they again agreed. Well the mother called on the young boy I to pray. You should have seen this boys faith, his faith was showing so exceedingly...he didn't doubt that God wouldn't answer his prayer. As we bowed our heads down in prayer, the spirit was so dang powerful, it was so quiet and peaceful, there was so much love in the room. Well I began to pray and talk To Heavenly Father and he began to get quieter and quieter until we couldn't hear him, then it was silent for about 10 seconds, we never heard him ask the question but everyone in that room knew and could feel he had asked God if it was true, well he didnt end his prayer but looked up and said yep It is true, haha well I told him to finish his prayer and he did perfectly and then we explained to them that, that was the spirit telling them that it was true and the Church was true. It was just a testimony builder to me that Heavenly Father does answer our prayers if we humble ourselves as a little Child, and I was so proud of that young boy, his faith was showing, it made me question myself, how good is my faith? Very spiritual story. Well they couldnt come this week they traveled because G's father had a stroke, so next week for sure.
